Vote of the Guilford Grays.
A friend in the company has favored us with the vote of the Grays, for members of the Legislature from this county. In the Senate, Peter Adams received 71. In the Commons, Smith 66, Glenn 66, Sherwood 62, Ragsdale 4, Davis 2, Cunningham 1, Hunt 1, Stewart 1. The regiment, the Twenty-seventy, were on duty on the day of the election, and the vote for Governor was small. Our correspondent gives the result as 244 for Vance, and 55 for Johnston.—Vance’s majority in the regiment, 189.
P. S.—Our correspondent omitted to give us the vote for Sheriff. Mr. Boon, the present incumbent, we understand received about 70 votes.
